Haglund, S.G. (8 SEP 1855 - 15 Sep 1907)

           Swan Gustave Haglund, Chicago Tradesman

S.G. Haglund died at his home in the town of Warner, Clark County, Wis., early Sunday morning, Sept. 15, 1907, after an illness of a few months. His death was caused by tubercular peritonitis, to relieve which he underwent an operation at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, recently. Mr. Haglund went to California last spring hoping the change of climate would benefit him. He was pleased with California and returned to dispose of his property here. He failed rapidly after his return and died a few months afterward.

Mr. Haglund was born in Sweden, Sept. 8, 1855, being 52 years and a week old when he died.

He was married in the later 70’s to Miss Gudmondson. Twelve children were born to them, to of them dying before they left Sweden and a baby here about four years ago. Of the nine living, two are in the West, Hugo, at Carrington, N.D., and Edvald at Havre, Mont. Mrs. Alex Behrens, the oldest daughter, lives south of town. Four boys and two girls live at home with their mother. All were present at the funeral except the two boys in the West.

The family came to America in April 1889, locating in Chicago, where Mr. Haglund worked at the tailor trade. After living in Chicago about twelve years they came to Greenwood. Mr. Haglund bought the Bilshowsky property and conducted a general store business for a time and then moved his family to a farm in the town of Warner, where they have lived since. During this latter time Mr. Haglund worked at his trade in Chicago.


The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon from the home in Warner, Rev. Svanoe conducting the service. The remains were laid to rest in the Greenwood Cemetery. Members of the local lodge of Beavers, of which deceased was a member, were present in a body at the burial services.
